Promnite is bringing the love back to club music. For all their futuristic thump and sonic precision, the tracks on his Snake Charmer EP are wonderfully, messily human. This Cali-via-NYC producer (and co-founder of LA’s beloved Athletixx DJ collective) eschews run-of-the mill bangers for the bittersweet turn up of “Gunsmoke,” featuring Denzel Curry, Nell, J.K. The Reaper and Twelve’len, and short-story worthy clubland tales on “Ride Around” with Adam Vida; meanwhile, Prom’s smooth stepper “Call Me” with Mark Johns nuzzles up against the space-age trunk rattle of “Cruise’n USA,” featuring LaDonnis. This ain’t no Soundcloud special — Snake Charmer is a four-track dive into life itself, showcasing the collaborative songwriting chops, elevated sound design and always-funky approach that makes Promnite one of the most exciting young producers in the game. Listen now (and pre-order the vinyl!)
Promnite is a master of moods. From futuristic house and hip-hop to throwback funk and r&b vibes, this LA-based producer and DJ has a catalog of slaps for every occasion, both solo and in collaboration with like-minded explorers Mr. Carmack, Djemba Djemba and his own Athletixx squad.
“Gunsmoke” is the first taste of Promnite’s new Fool’s Gold project and a fitting curtain call for 2016: heavy vibes taking listeners over the ledge and leaping into an unknown future. With new school rap hero Denzel Curry getting righteous on the mic (returning the favor for the Promnite-produced “Story: No Title” on his acclaimed Imperial) alongside Nell, J.K. The Reaper & Twelve’len, “Gunsmoke” cranks the feels (and the snares) to 11, setting a tone for Promnite’s most vivid and personal collection to date.
LA party champ and Athletixx founder Promnite turns Rome Fortune’s “Dance” into a late-night stomper as only he can. Mixing a hypnotic bassline and swinging house kicks with mammoth half-time drops, Fool’s Gold’s latest “Dance” remix is a body-mover like none other. Listen to Jerome Raheem Fortune and stay tuned for the Dance Remixes EP.
Promnite’s gonna love you down. As a founding member of LA’s Athletixx crew (alongside Hoodboi, Falcons and Kittens), he’s been mixing futuristic hip-hop, R&B and next level electronic sounds like only a true sensei of dancefloor seduction can. That same vibe fuels Promnite’s remixes and original productions, which bounce from basement house to slow-n-low collabs with beat kings Mr. Carmack, Alizzz and more. His Fool’s Gold debut “Work It Out” with Penthouse Penthouse might be the producer’s grooviest move yet: a slinky, vocoder’d soundtrack to “U UP?” texts and all your other after-midnight activities. Listen to “Work It Out” now and stay tuned for more from Promnite!
